I have a good friend, well he’s more than a good friend. We were seeing each other for a while. He was raised in a good Catholic family, but once he got to college he started becoming addicted to Japanese anime. This is causing him to literally lose his mind. He’s completely taken by it, to the point of where he’s losing his grip on reality. He thinks that Church is making him crazy because he’s told to go every week, and is refusing Mass. He has been telling me that the Chuch was an accident, so why does he have to go? I’m trying to tell him that he needs God. But he’s just being so defiant. In one show he’s watching it was violent, and he’s accusing me of plotting to destroy him, like in the show. He thinks I’m the one with problems and he’s attempting to try to change me. I’m scared he’s going to hurt himself seriously. He frightens me so much. It’s gotten to a point where it’s out of my hands. I’m praying like a mad woman for him. Last night, I was flipping through my prayer book, and found St. Rita, Patron of the Impssobile. I thought she was appropriate for him.
St. Rita, please ask Jesus to grant peace upon my “impssobile” friend. Help him come back to God. I ask this through your good name, St. Rita. Please pray for him.
I would appreciate it if you could say a little prayer for him.
